Coming Soon: The Collective, Taproom & Brewery


As many of you know, we are currently brewing in a small warehouse in Haltom City, while our permanent location in the Near Southside district of Fort Worth is under renovation.  We are really excited about the space, not just because we installed an air-conditioning system, but because it is a building that has been standing since the early 1920’s and it comes with a lot of charm and history.  From the old fire door on the north wall to the exposed brick throughout, it gives the character that we desired for our Brewery and Taproom.

While the space is coming along a lot slower than we planned, we are enjoying seeing the progress it’s making.  We acquired the space back in April after two years of searching for the perfect property, location, and price.  The first thing that needed to happen was the addition of plumbing and bathrooms.  The framing for the bathrooms went-up rather quickly. 

By the beginning of May, with progress moving at a glacial pace, the insulation and drywall went up for the bathrooms and the air-conditioning (yes, we said air-conditioning) was installed. 

In June some structural adjustments were made to the roof, the old broken windows were removed, and the bathrooms were put-together with running water and electricity. 

Finally, now in July, half of the new windows have been installed, the walkway has been pushed back to be made into a closet, and the front side door has been transformed into a window. 

The concrete floors are under renovation as we speak, and the rest of the windows are being put-in.  We hope to have the front doors and façade complete by the end of month in preparation for our new brewing systems delivery. 

We are hopeful that we will be open to the public late August, but until then you can enjoy a Mustache Rye’d Rye Porter and/or a Pale Galaxy Session IPA on tap at The Bearded LadyBrewed and The Pour House.
